Palomino (3rd of 3)


The golden-coloured Palomino, with a white mane and tail, is not strictly a breed but a colour, although it is recognised as a breed in the United States. Palominos, believed to have originated in China, are versatile, and skillful in all aspects of work and competition. Michelle Ready from Papakura is driving a two-wheeled carriage, pulled by her Palomino, around an obstacle course, March 2006.
